THE REGIONAL Achievement Tests for this school year in Western Visayas will go on, according to Department of Education 6 Regional Director Mildred Garay.

Garay said that the Dep-Ed in consultation with the different school division superintendents has decided to go on with the holding of the RAT for this school year 2011-2012 to assess the performance of the schoolchildren and to know which subject area needs to be improved on.

She said the order of Education Secretary Armin Luistro to discontinue the conduct of the Regional and Division Achievement Tests will take effect next school year 2012-2013.

In his DepEd Order No. 7, Luistro has ordered the discontinuation of all scheduled RAT and DAT or any similar assessment tools used by the regions and the divisions in the public system beginning school year 2012 to 2013 with the start of the transition phase in the implementation of the K to 12 Basic Education Curriculum.

Luistro said in his directive that the “National Achievement Test held March every year shall be the sole assessment tool that will be recognized in measuring the performance of pupils and students attributing to the performance of individual schools, municipalities, congressional districts, school city divisions, provinces and region.”
